Ming Wang

SAP Workshop

The CBE’s Information Systems department and Dr. Ming Wang, SAP Faculty Coordinator hosted the SAP Big Data Analytics Faculty Workshop at Cal State L.A. on May 29th and 30th.  The event attracted faculty members from as far away as CSU San Marcos and San Francisco State.  The high value of SAP across business attracted not only our CBE faculty from CIS but also other departments such as Finance and Management.
The attendees gained hands-on experience with SAP Big Data Analysis software tools and cloud computing using SAP University Alliances Curricula. Workshop topics included Data Visualization using Lumira; Teradata; the analytics mobile app Design Studio; SAP Predictive Analytics and the in-memory database HANA.
As we seek to prepare our students for 21st Century jobs, it is particularly important that our faculty be up to date on the newest SAP technologies for big data analytics, mobile computing and predictive analysis.  Faculty participants in this workshop can use the knowledge and materials in their classes.  It will be very helpful in preparing our students for the workplace of the future.
